Edward Dougherty

Edward A. Dougherty's fourth collection of poems Grace Street is available from Cayuga Lake Books. In 2015, he published Everyday Objects (Plain View) and his fifth chapbook, House of Green Water (FootHills Publishing), and in May 2015, his emblems (small calligraphic artwork with a brief poem) were exhibited at the Word & Image Gallery at the Bright Hill Literary Center. He is also the author of two other collections, Pilgrimage to a Gingko Tree (WordTech) and Part Darkness, Part Breath (Plain View). After finishing his MFA in Bowling Green, Ohio, Dougherty was poetry editor of the Mid-American Review. Then, he and his spouse traveled to Hiroshima to be volunteer directors of the World Friendship Center where they served for two and a half years, witnessing the fiftieth anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They now live and work in Corning, New York, a place defined by the confluence of three rivers and a glass company you may have heard of.
